============================= TIME 2020 =============================

27th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning

Bozen-Bolzano (Italy), 23th-25th September 


Foremost, the TIME 2020 organizing committee hopes you are all in good 

We announce that TIME 2020, co-located with BOSK 2020, will allow for 
virtual attendance. Thus, the paper submission and the selection process 
will run just as expected, and physical participation in the symposium 
will not be a prerequisite for publication. Whether the symposium will 
allow also a physical attendance will be decided in the coming weeks 
together with the BOSK 2020 organizers. Reduced registration fees will 
be allowed for virtual participants. We thus warmly invite you all again 
to submit your papers to TIME 2020.


Aims & Scope


Since 1994, the TIME International Symposium on Temporal Representation 
and Reasoning aims to bring together researchers in the area of temporal 
reasoning in Computer Science. TIME 2020 encompasses three tracks, but 
has a single program committee. The conference will be organized as a 
combination of technical paper presentations, keynote talks, and 



- Time in Artificial Intelligence

- Temporal Databases

- Temporal Logic and Reasoning

Following a long-standing tradition, submission topics include (but are 
no limited to):

- Temporal aspects of agent and policy-based systems

- Spatial and temporal reasoning- Time in natural language 

- Spatio-temporal knowledge representation systems

- Reasoning about actions and change

- Planning and planning languages

- Ontologies of time and space-time

- Belief and uncertainty in 
temporal knowledge

- Temporal learning and discovery

- Temporal data models and query languages

- Temporal query processing and indexing

- Temporal data mining

- Time series data management

- Stream data management

- Spatio-temporal data management, including moving objects

- Data currency and expiration

- Indeterminate and imprecise temporal data

- Temporal constraints

- Specification and verification of systems

- Verification of web applications

- Synthesis and execution

- Model-checking algorithms and implementations

- Verification of infinite-state systems

- Reasoning about transition systems

- Other aspects of temporal architectures

Submission & Publication


TIME 2020 accepts submissions in PDF format, not longer than 12 pages 
excluding references and appendix. The appendix is limited to 5 pages, 
and the reviewers may or may not take it into account for their 
recommendation. Submissions must be formatted following the LIPIcs 
instructions (https://submission.dagstuhl.de/documentation/authors), and 
preferably redacted in LaTex. Submissions are managed by EasyChair 
(https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=time2020). TIME policy is 
single-blind, so the names of the authors should not be hidden in the 
submitted draft. Members of the program committee, excluding the 
co-chairs, are allowed to submit papers. Submitted papers will be 
refereed for quality, correctness, originality, and relevance to the 

Submissions to TIME 2020 must be original, and parallel submissions of 
the same material to other conferences or journals are not allowed. 
Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and included in the 
proceedings, which will be published by LIPIcs-Leibniz International 
Proceedings in Informatics 
(https://www.dagstuhl.de/en/publications/lipics/). This is a series of 
high-quality peer-reviewed conference proceedings and published 
according to the principle of OpenAccess. At least one author of each 
accepted paper must register at the conference and present the paper.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version 
of their contribution to a special issue of a high-quality journal yet 
to be decided.
